Polio medicine


Polio medicine –

Have you seen a child whose legs are very weak and who walks with the help of crutches or a stick?

This is caused by the viral infectious disease polio.

Polio disease is caused by polio virus, the smallest of the viruses known so far.

This virus multiplies in the intestinal wall of the infected person and reaches the central nervous system

through lymph and blood flow,

destroying the nerves that control the muscles of the legs.

Due to lack of nerve impulse, the muscles of the legs are not able to function properly,

hence the infected legs become paralyzed or crippled for life.

Sometimes this disease also results in death.

Polio virus is present in the feces of the patient, and flies carry it to food, water and other food items and pollute them.

This virus enters the stomach of children with food and water and infects them.
